Chicago Normal College 

Corner 68th Street and Stewart Avenue 












Chicago Normal College, while not the only institution of its kind in the 
country, has one notable feature in that it is entirely supported by the municipality. 
Its ideals and conceptions of education are of the highest, and place it as one of 
the best colleges in the world preparing young men and women to take up the task 
of educating the youth of the country to be useful citizens and cultured men and 

The school is admirably located on the outskirts of the city, and housed in one 
of a group of three buildings. The main building contains the College itself, flanked 
on one side by Parker High School, and on the other by Parker Practice, in which 
the embryo teachers, under the eyes of selected critics, are given the practical experi- 
ence which supplements the theoretical work of the course. 

The activities of the school are not confined to the dry seeking after knowledge 
contained in books, but a broadening influence is introduced in the form of clubs of 
various kinds. Dancing, Glee, Athletic, etc., and our Fridy Social Hour, which 
.promote a spirit of amity and good fellowship obtainable in no other way. 

In the electives offered as part of the training, can be found an outlet for any 
special talent which the students may have, and also leads to specialization in certain 
subjects for which they have shown marked aptitude. 

Under the leadership of Mr. Owens, whose progressive and practical work in 

behalf of the school has done so much to make it what it is, we expect to keep 

broadening the scope of the work until Chicago Normal College is absolutely the 
best teachers' college in the world, bar none.

History of the Class of June, 1919 

First of all, let me tell you that the class of June, 1919, is, as all other classes 
have been, the best that has yet appeared. With that settled, we can go on to a 
record of some of their deeds. 

This class might well be called the Victory Class, for it was during our reign 
that the U. S. fought and won the Great Word War. We entered the halls of this 
great Normal College just four months after war was declared and promptly set 
to work to do our bit in winning the war. We knitted, we sewed, rolled bandages, 
adopted French orphans, collected money for the Red Cross, helped in the Liberty 
Bond campaigns, gave up eating many things we liked, and just did all we possibly 
could. If we do say it ourselves, we think we did it remarkably well. Of course 
with such assistance the U. S. couldn't fail to win. And then, oh, how we did do 
our bit (?) with the noise, especially on the "tuning up" day, November 7, 1918, 
and when the boys came home we played flower-girls and had a splendid time. 

Besides these many outside interests we did find time to study once in a while. 
As per Normal custom, we left our note-books to be written up the night before they 
were due and then sat up until the "wee sma' hours" completing them. Psychology 
experiments, education exams, geography topics, state reports, "bug" reports, like 
mumps, measles and chicken-pox, we had them all and valiantly survived. We loved 
(?) to write our plans, ^^•e loved our critics, oiu" practice work and our pupils. The 
first day of practice brought the usual pangs of fear and the last day threw us into 
deep sorrow. But through it all we have maintained our renowned joyous spirits 
and no sorrow however great could entirely- down us. And now we have come to 
the last days of our Normal school life. Within the chrysales that have held us 
there are stronger and stronger movements and in a few short weeks the members 
of the class of June, 1919, will emerge as glowing butterflies eager to try their wings 
in this new world that lies before them and endeavor by their superior wisdom to 
entrance the mortals around them and instil a small portion of it into the minds of 
the coming generation. 

Adieu, dear comrades.

History of the February Class of 1921 

After teaching for five years and spending mj' vacations at summer schools, I 
thought that I would break loose from the usual order of things and spend the summer 
in the Yellowstone and thus tr}- to forget the worries of educating Chicago's youth. 

I registered at the Mammoth Springs Hotel. My eye wandered curiously over 
the page and at the top I noticed the names, Miss Margaret Powers and Miss Mar- 
garet Lynch. They sounded so familiar as to cause me to search my school-marm brain 
to remember where I had heard them before. Almost instantly I recollected that both 
of these young ladies had been warm friends of mine in the good days at Normal. 

That evening I met them and we had the most enthusiastic "talk fest" that I ever 
participated in. The talk ran back to Normal after we had discussed our present 
vocations and avocations for a while. We remembered how we had come to Normal 
for the first time on a day when the thermometer registered 14 degrees below. We 
remembered how there had been four sections, A. B. C. and D., and about one hundred 
students altogether. We remembered the advisors and our junior officers: 

President Janet Magill 

Vice-President Doris Mead 

Secretary Kathryx jVIoriarty 

Treasurer Helen Byrne 

And oh, the good times we had during those two j-ears — two N. C. A. A. dances, 
S. D. C. plays, and a prom which suggested its grand success but also the fi-rst col- 
lection of class dues. 

Our memories next went back to the Tuesday afternoons devoted to war work, 
knitting, sewing, surgical dressings, and Camp Scott. The mention of Red Cross 
at once suggested our Red Cross Parade to Grant Park and the War Exposition. 
How exciting it was to march before hundreds of spectators whom we felt sure were 
observing our good posture. 

Our Senior j^ears saw the World's War brought to a glorious climax and we 
lived once more through the two stirring days of Nov. 7 and 11 — the mad rush to 
the Auditorium, the stamping and cheering, the sobs and cries. Amidst this emo- 
tional strain we found time, however, to draw together and elect our senior officers. 

President Lillian Plowright 

Vice-President Augusta Jockman 

Secretary Frances Wallace 

Treasurer Helen Byrne 

With the suggestion of practice we again livened up and recalled the horrors 
of assignments and first day practise. And then Graduation Day — that which shall 
be never forgotten. At times we remembered the work had seemed heavy and our 
troubles many but now these memories blended into our final conclusion that our two 
years at Normal were happy because of the numberless good times and friends. —

Upper Juniors History 

It was on September 4th, 

When all so burned and brown, 

The future class of '20 
Came to Normal town. 

President, Lillian Foley, 
Treasurer, Helen Brown, 

With Norma Holmes as secretary, 
The best cabinet in town ! 

Miss Cabell gave us pamphlets, 
As she met us at the door. 

And sent us to assembly 
To digest their rules galore. 

We had a very pleasant term, 
'Tho we only paid our dues, 

And had a few short meetings, 
To talk about the news. 

We next were given sections. 
Some sad, some filled with glee, 

For those in E. H. K or F 
Had friends in L or G. 

There was a real election. 

When next the time came round; 
In primaries and polling sure 

Clerks and judges did abound. 

We soon were in our classes, 

And soon our books were bought, 

And everything from frogs to dates 
With precision we were taught. 

At organizing we were late. 

This class 1920. 
But when we did w'e lost no time 

And officers were plenty. 

As result of this election. 

We kept jNliss Foley and Miss Brown, 
Miss Spira became vice-president. 

Miss Turnquist to jot things down. 

As a class we are most happy. 

Our constitutions great ! 
Count on us ! We're all in line, 

To keep up the Seniors gait! 

Ruth Webb, 
Dorothy Avers. 







m*'^m0 ^. 




February 3rd of this year there entered an array of Normalites to be. Prob- 
ably one of the things that impressed us most was not the size of the school but the 
great amount and variety of work that was being accomplished. We all ' entered 
Normal College timidly and bashfully, but later regained the boldness and confidence 
of our High School Days. Among this number of prospective Normalites there 
were nine young men of whom you will hear an account of in the Manual Training 

Early in the semester we were agreeably surprised when we received an invita- 
tion to a party given by the Lower Seniors in order that we might feel more at home. 
It would be useless to try to descrii , amount of pleasure we derived from 

this party. \ 

At the first meeting of the ch. s were elected. In this election the 

young women showed their demo by electing two young men. The 

result of the election was as follow o. 

President .William Sypniewski 

Secretary-Treasurer Donald Naden 

Delegate-at-Large Miss Moriarity 

The Lower Juniors have shown their activity by arranging the program for 
Decoration Day. 

The impression the Lower Juniors left behind them is one thing to be remem- 
bered. Not only in school activities but also in their studies the Lower Juniors 
have been a success. So far we have bowed to the leadership of the older classes. 
They have been here longer and have caught the spirit of Normal. We are trying 
to profit by their example in a meekness and humility becoming to those who should 
be seen and not heard. In a sense we have been measuring the course, preliminary 
to the real race which is to come. 

But now, as the semester draws to a close, we feel that we have found our pace 
and that we have the steady tride which will bring us over the line in 1921. 

We feel that the school has great traditions, and a great usefulness. And we are 
glad to have part in an organization which means so much to the schools of Chicago 
and the welfare of the entire city. Our motto is Chicago's own 'T will," and with 
this as our inspiration, together with the fine example of those who have gone before ; 
we feel that the Lower Juniors are good material for carrying forward the best 
traditions of the School. 

President, 1921,

Unlike other departments we kindergarteners have a club of our own. This 
makes it very easy for us to have many good times that we might not enjoy 

One of our main sources of enjoyment are the performances which our more 
talented members seems perfectly willing to give to their less gifted sisters. \A e 
have rivals of Galli-Curci, Ruth St. Denis, Airs. Vernon Castle, and any other 
renowned artist that can be mentioned. We find that we are equal to any 
emergency from playing "Smiles" and "Mickey" in assembly to outhning chap- 
ters in "Democracy and Education." Our training is designed to prepare us for 
any emergency. We surely meet every kind in practice, from clay lessons to bead 

When we came back last September we learned that Mrs. Moulton would 
not be with us. We missed her greatly and watched with some trepidation for 
her successor. Miss Gorham proved so agreeable a surprise that we consider 
ourselves very luck)' to have two such directors as Aliss Russell and she. 

The graduating class this year will number thirty-four kindergarteners, the 
!argest group on record at Normal. The succeeding classes, though, are much 
smaller but nevertheless they are not lacking in enthusiasm so that while there 
will be a falling off in number the department will forge ahead in quality if not 
in quantity. 






Printing Department and 
Manual Drawing 

September 1918, while the boys were answering the call to the "Colors," 
the Chicago Normal,, for the first time in its history, offered the Printing Course 
to the young women of the College. Ten girls volunteered to follow the course: 
Margaret Coughlin, Eleanor Fleming, Marie Garvey, Anna Moore and Loretta 
Sullivan who graduate in June 1919; and Margaret Flynn, Margaret Merki, 
Georgia Merki, Margaret Murray and Eileen Ryan, who graduate in Febiuary 
1920. On graduating these girls will receive an Elementary Certificate as well 
as a Printing Certificate. The Course has been very thorough and successful 
under the able guidance of Mr. Fred Thoran, to whom we feel very much 

Manual Training Department 

Did you ask, "Where are the boys of Normal.'" Ask the Lower Juniors. 
They have twelve real honest to goodness boys in their class, and are they 
puffed up about it, well., maybe. 

These rare specimens of the genus homo are in the Manual Training De- 
partment, learning all the tricks of the trade of teaching the kiddies to make 
bookcases and candle-sticks for home consumption. 

So much appreciated are these super-men that already they have been award- 
ed two of the three coveted class offices, which is beaucoup appreciation say we. 

The Manual Training Department, piloted by Messrs. McMurray, Moiiow 
and Thoren, has written "Finis" to another very successful chapter of Normal 
history, and is already looking forward to another semester with the same enthu- 
eiasm which has characterized its past career. 






Parker Practice 

Is there a oirl at Normal who does not know of the Parker Practice School: 
If there is, one may be certain she has not been at Normal long. 

It is at this school that many of us get our first idea of teaching frci.x che 
teacher's standpoint. 

Parker is one of the three Junior High Schools in Chicago and the work hai> 
proved very successful. The Junior High School is comprised of the seventh, 
eighth and ninth grades. All high school subjects are given, including foreign 
languages, algebra, etc. Supervised study is also a part of the program. Depart- 
mental work starts from the sixth grade and continues thru the Junior High 

Parker again comes to the front with its Deaf Oral department. Children 
come here from all parts of th city and remarkable work has been done in this 

The critic teachers are all very capable and the practice students are bene- 
fited greatly by being under their supervision. Another way in which the stud- 
ents are benefited is by the observation of work in all the grades,, which they are 
requested to do. This gives them a broader outlook on the scope of teaching. 

Parker is considered one of best schools in the city and under Mr. Hatfield's 
able direction it has made a name for itself. 



The Carter School 

Normal girls assigned to practice at the Carter School are fortunate. 

One of the striking features about the school is the feeling of hearty co- 
operation between the principal, Nliss Lane, the teachers and pupils. 

Visitors readily notice the attention and quick response of the children 
toward both the critic and student teachers alike. This atmosphere created by 
the attention and response gives the student teacher a feeling of poise and con- 
fidence and the strained feeling, which often exists between teacher and class, 
soon passes a\\'a\'. 

The school spirit — and there is one — is probably kept up by the clubs and 
athletics. An excellent orchestra has been formed by the pupils under the lead- 
ership of Aliss Alulro}'. This orchestra is indeed the pride of the school. 

A large playground, g}'mnasium and swimming pool enable the children to 
become enthusiastic over athletics. 

When there is enthusiasm in one thing it is likely to be found elsewhere. 
Because of this spirit of alertness and eagerness among the teachers and pupils 
and because of the help received, we students who have practiced there join in 

So here's to Carter and each well known room. 

Where we taught and were taught and met with our doom.

Haines Practice 

Any Normal girl should be happy if she is assigned to the Haines Practice 
School, for it is a very interesting' and helpful experience for a student. 

The atmosphere at this school is different from any other school in the city. 
Italians and Sicilians comprise the greater part of the neighborhood and the 
children are very loving, though they do have to come to school to get their baths. 

A great deal of charity work has to be done here. It is a common occurrence 
to see the children coming with little more than enough to keep them warm, and 
the school tries to remedy these needs. A room is set aside in the building 
where the children get measured for shoes and clothing, under the direction of 
Miss Fischer. 

Medical attention is also given to those who need it. This improves the 
health of the whole neighborhood. 

The Penny Lunch System is carried on here too. The children take a gieat 
interest in it and a nourishing lunch is obtained for a few cents. This lunch 
consists of soup, sandwiches, milk and other substantial foods. 

The critics realize the difficulties of the practice students and are very s\m- 
pathetic. It has been said they are as "second mothers" to the girls. 

We girls wish to thank Miss Daly and the critics at Haines for the help and 
pleasure they have given us

The Emblem 

The Staff of 1919 has worked long and hard with a certain aim in view, that 
is — to make this year's "Emblem" the very best one Normal has ever published. 
We have endeavored to make the "Emblem" a product of the entire college 
and to do this w^ have asked not only the Senior Classes, but also the Junior 
Classes, the Faculty, the Practice Schools and our Alumni to aid us. We Have 
had the heartiest cooperation from everyone we asked, \^'ith this able assist- 
ance the "Emblem" of June, nineteen hundred and nineteen has survivd its nu- 
merous delays, many, many coiiimittee meetings., and Facultv censorship, and 
is now a hnished product. 

Although smaller than usual owing to existing conditions and decreased en- 
rollment in College, it is our hope and belief that it more than makes up in ex- 
cellence what it lacks in size. 

We ask you to consider, before you criticize adversely or otherwise, that we 
have tried to do our best, and that this is the year-book of the whole Xcn-mal 
College, and you have all helped, in a small or greater degree, to make it a 


The Emblem Staff of 1919 wishes to acjcnowledge their obligation to the 
Faculty — notably J\lr. Morrow, Mr. Detterer and Air. Hatfield for their \'aluable 
criticism and advise, and to the students and other contributors who have pro- 
moted the efficiency and helped to make the Emblem of '19 what it is. 

The printing department has been most helpful in printing all our printed 
matter, and the typewriting class has worked ver}' hard to get our manuscripts 
ready for the printers. Everyone on the committees has worked faithfulh'., and 
it is due to their efforts that the book is what it is.

The S.D.C. organized again last September and after a tryout which gave 
many a poor Senior cold feet, the Aluses accepted a number of new members full 
of ambition to put the Garrick and the Cort to shame by their dramatic endeav- 
ors. After the initiation, with the usual sackcloth parade, during which the 
Seniors found it a rather difficult task to retain their senior "teachiferous" dig- 
nit}', plans were made for the "big play." The judges had little trouble in select- 
ing the cast, as there is talent galore in the club. But here is where the trials and 
tribulations of our poor actresses began, in other words the rehearsals. In Jan- 
uary, Oscar Wilde's "Lady Windemere's Fan" and in May, J. Palgrave Simpson's 
"A Scrap of Paper" were triumphantly presented. And now the S.D.C. closes 
another successful year in its existence and adds glory to its name, especially as a 
goodly portion of the proceeds were given to a just cause — The Armenian Relief. 

To Miss Freeman we are greatly indebted, for it was her untiring aid and 
assistance that made the \ear a success. We would also like to extend a word 
of thanks to our honorable judges — Air. Hinkle, Mr. Hatfield and Mr. Detterer 
the latter of whom cleverly aided us in our stage decorating.

With the able assistance of Air. Fairbanks, our efficient director, the chib 
has had a pleasant and successful career. The musicales which were held during 
May and November delighted all who attended Mr. Fairbank's selection are al- 
ways artistic and we all enjoy singing them. 

Our part of the May musicale consisted of the following: 

a. Woodlawn Breezes Philip Weiser 

b. Humming Bird H. W. Fairbanks 

c. Song of Victory L. Coerne 

Solos were rendered by Miss Cecelia L^rban, Miss Eleanor Fleming and Aliss 
Margaret Rudd, all members of the club. 

Miss Leone Kruse, accompanied by Mr. H. W. Fairbanks, rendered several 
solos very beautifully. 

The club had a program graduation day. It consisted of chorus work by 
members of the glee club. 

Mr. Fairbanks is a composer , a director, a teacher, but most of all a true 
friend to all Normal students.

\\'hen our beloved director, Aliss Garthe, sent forth the call for the first meet- 
ing of the Junior Glee Club in September, volunteers responded in goodly num- 
bers. Among those present at the first meeting were many newcomers who were 
graciously received. We entered into our new work with happy hearts, saying 
to ourselves. "We will succeed," for Aliss Garthe had promised us a cantata if 
we did. 

At the Fall Alusicale in December the Junior Glee Club contributed: 

The Vision Faure 

Nocturne Helen Browne 

The Lark Carl Hahn 

Dear Lad O'AIine Gina Bransiomlie 

Miss Roby Roberts w^as to have been our soloist. Because of her sudden 
death, a few days before the concert, the musical world lost a charming gem-like 
link in its golden chain of artists. Aliss Valerie Walker Marshal consented to 
give us of her talent in our dilemma. 

On the occasion of a banquet given in honor of an Educational Commission 
visiting the city, the president of the Wom.en's City Club invited us to sing. It 
happened to be the same day that the Blackhawks returned and we all assembled 
at the Stevens Building from the various theatres in town. We repeated the pro- 
gram given at the Autumn Festival. 

The Spring Festival w'as now on the horizon of the dim future. At this time 
W'C were firmly established in the opinion that Galli-Curci's laurels would be com- 
ing to all of us. 

Miss Garthe's announcement that we would sing a cantata at the Mustcale 
was met with storms of applause. Were we glad.^ I'll say we were. 

On IVIay 12th the Spring Festival was given, the Junior Glee Club sang. 

In Spring Waldemar Bargiel 

Cantata (The Lady of Shalott) Wilfred Bendall 

y\mong the artists who rendered the program a complete success were: 

Mrs. Ethel Benedict Soprano 

Mr. S. Leuton Violin 

Mr. G. Knackstedt Piano 

Our own Miss Marthe Kralicek Piano 

Alice Garthe Director 

Unanimously we extend our sincerest gratitude to Miss Garthe for the pleas- 
ure and inspiration she has offered us through her untiring efforts in our behalf. 
To the Junior Glee Club of the coming year Ave leave "our flaming torch." 
"Be yours to bear it high."

the clear eye and the sure., steady arm of the tennis player; the grace of the 
dancer; the fine physical trim of the swimmer; or those who we see returning 
with flushed cheeks and shinin_g eyes from baseball, hiking, basketball or hockey: 

And great, perhaps greater, are the social benefits, for in all our activities 
there is fostered a spirit of good sportsmanship which makes for good losers or

The Swimming Club is perhaps the most active and most popular club in 
the school. Every Monday we see girls go over to the Arts building with bath- 
ing suits, caps and towels and in an hour or so returning with damp locks and 
joyful countenances. These girls, my dear reader, have been practicing the art 
of the mermaid and if they keep on bid fair to outrival Annette Kellerman her- 
self. Did >-ou see the meet.' My, how you envied those girls their power to 
dart through the water like regular fish and to dive into the deep blue depths and 
then emerge at entirely unexpected places. Join the swimming club and \'ou too 
can be a mermaid. 

W'e wish to thank Miss Gahl for the help she has given us and her faithful- 
ness in coming every Monday. We also wish to thank Miss Gallagher for her 
valuable sussestions and for the interest she h^s taken in our work.

This we did at the summons of our C. O., Miss Campbell, of the Columbia 
School of Expression. Owing to her efforts we are now Marilyn Millers and Ann 
Penningtons. After thirteen weeks of various "setting up" exercises, the com- 
pany was reviewed by Majors Pendleton, Gallagher and Coram. The following 
were awarded commissions in the Terpsichorean Corps: 

First Lieutenants:

Tennis that's the sport for }-ou ! Have you ever played it.' Don't you think 
it great fun: 

The girls belonging to the tennis club think it is, if we can judge at all by 
the number out last fall and this spring. There are other inducements besides 
just fun! the fine outdoor exercise, the new friends one makes and the N.C.A.A. 
points to be won. 

In the seme finals (1918) Esther Hanson, the champion received 400 points 
and Estelle Cox, second place, received 200 points. The other two contestants, 
Julia Bluestein and Jeanette Goldstein each received 100 points. 

In the doubles Esther Schmidt and Marion Challenger showed what a nne 
team they made by winning, thereby receiving 200 points each. Marguerite 
Foster and Clara Ives were the losers and each received 100 points. 



Hockey Ci 

The Hockey Club 

Last semester about forty eager girls assembled at the Hamilton Park field 
to learn the art of manipulating the hockey stick. Miss Jones was our enthu- 
siastic and efficient coach. Our officers were: 

President .... Florence Tatro 

Secretary . . . Elizabeth Chapman 

Senior Captains . Esther Odenbrett, Margaret Gormaly 

Junior Captains . Marion Clohesy, Dorothy O'Reilly 

The too contending senior teams were formed on which all the seniors and some 
of the juniors played. The remaining juniors played on two other contending 
teams. There were all too many times that we could not play because bad 
weather made the field unfit for practice and I'm sure we all felt sorry when 
the bulletin board showed the notice, "No hockey." Early in December the 
junior team and the senior team were formed and a practice game played. The 
next Thursday we played off our final game, the seniors winning to the tune 
of 4 to 3. The All-star team was chosen as follows: 

Center forward 
Right forward 
Left forward 
Right wing 
Left wing 
Center half back 
Right half back 
Left half back 
Right full back

Batter up ! P-l-a-y- b-a-1-1 ! Last fall there were two indoor baseball teams. 
Thev played practice games at least twice a week and finally fought the final 
game in which the junior and senior teams sought to win the championship. The 
prize was awarded to the seniors in the end. 

The juniors proved good losers and contended themselves with the thought 
that they would be champs when they had become seniors. Both teams are 
working hard this year with the Marion Challenger and Eileen Wall as coaches. 
There is the greatest display of pep and good playing by all the enthusiasts who 
have been practicing regular since the first of May. We feel certain that when 
The White Sox admit women on their team there will be a good showing of play- 
ers from the Chicago Normal College. 

All-to-gether-girls ! Are you ready.' Nine rahs for Indoor Baseball! Make 
it snappy! 1-2-3 !

The Hiking Club 

President . . . . . Dorothy O'Reilly 

Secretary - . . . . Dorothy Ayers 

The attendance on the hikes this year has been gratifying to say the very 
least. We do not knou' whether to ascribe this to the fifty points given for per- 
fect attendance on all hikes or to the much desired heightening of cheek tints. 
We are inclined to attribute it all to the "I'm dead to the world" attitude one has 
after returning from a good, long jaunt. 

These trips have been taken to various places on the South side including 
Washington Park, Sherman and Jackson Parks. The last long hike to Beverly 
Hills was a great success. How could it be otherwise when "eats" were a part 
of the program.? 

The hikes have been announced by some of the catchiest and prettiest notices 
that have graced the bulletin board this year. The mystery is, that in spite of 
these gay bits of information, one half of the club went to Jackson Park and an- 
other to Washington Park on the very first hike. It was a bad start, but it never 
happened again. 

Those who hike are never too tired to hike an extra block to a bakery and 
those who have not hiked this year are asked to get in on the fifty points cind 
rosy cheeks next semester. 

We hike along the high\^•ays 
And we stroll in woody lanes, 
Though we come home tired and aching 
Our "pep" and "go" ne'er wanes.

Student's Council 

Student's Council 





Esther Schaiidt 

Graces Gro\es 

Ruth \\'ebb 

The part pla)'ed by the Student's Council in tlie Chicago Normal College 
is becoming more and more important. If }'ou wish deliverance from an over- 
whelming assignment, luncheon cost reduced to almost nothing, rules on how to 
conduct yourself within these sacred walls, or an}'thing at all, just ask the Stud- 
ent's Council and they will do their best to help }-ou out. 

But all joking aside the importance of this organization cannot be over- 
emphasized and their work is becoming of more and more varied character. We 
have attempted a great deal and as is usual have accomplished some of the things 
and have been forced to drop some. We tried to see that the washrooms were 
kept in a good condition., the lunchroom managed in the best wa>' for ever}' one 
concerned, we have drawn up a general outline for a year's assembly programs 
and offered suggestions in regard to the method of carrying it out and have 
presented this to the faculty for consideration. \\& asked for and received from 
the facult}' the rules in regarding to warnings and ffunk notices and have thru 
a resolution caused a statement to be made that flunk notices are to be sent out 
before a student goes in to practice. We have attempted various plans for pro- 
moting school spirit, first by means of a weekly paper and then by a school 
orchestra. The first plan could not be carried out because of the interference 
with the Eimblem and the second plan is still in the process of being "carried 
out." Before the year is over we hope to accomplish still more, first the Council 
has recommended that a Course in Social Discipline, similar to se\'eral lectures 
given the different classes, form a part of the regular Xormal College curriculum 
and secondly, that students be given a mark in each course as that course is 
completed, considering practice work as a course. 

We have worked to bring this Council as close as possible to that situation 
where the Council and Faculty are working hand in hand to do all they can for 
the good of the school. Altho we ha\-e failed in some places yet we feel that we 
^lave certainly gone one step higher towards this ideal and have formed a stronger, 
firmer foundation on which future Councils ma\- work. — E. L. S. 




War Relief 

In spite of the armistice the allotments of yarn which were announced from 
time to time were eagelry knitted into the various articles by the students. Edna 
AlcCarty was student head of the War Relief Activities. All were interested in 
the especially good series of talks delivered by various speakers. 

On Monday, April the fourteenth, Miss Cassette spoke in the auditorium to 
the student body and faculty of the Chicago Normal College. 

The meeting came to order more promptly than usual. An air of expectancy 
pervaded the audience. We had learned previously of the prospective visit of 
our honored guest and were anxious to see and hear the woman who had won 
the Cross of the Legion of Honor. In spite of the quiet unassuming manner in 
which Miss Cassette entered, there was a spontaneous greeting of applause. 

Miss Cassette is a Chicago woman. She spent many years previous to the 
war in Paris as an artist. At the time the war broke out,, she was on a visit in 
America, but on hearing the news, she returned immediately to Paris and offered 
her services. At first she did just minor things, but it was not long before she 
found her real place. Her complete knowledge of anatomy together with her 
ingenuity helped her jn inventing many mechanical appliances for the relief of 
the wounded. 

In the course of the war, as she said, she had experienced all the agonies 
of the flesh. When she reminded herself of it her voice faltered and the slight 
twist of her mouth became more pronounced. Her manner of speaking was so 
calm and quiet that she simply held her audience every moment of the time, 
and if it had been her intention to deliver a message, she would have done it 
more successfully. — R- C.

Every graduate of the Chicago Normal College should be an active member 
of the Alumni Association. There is work to be done in the school system of 
Chicago, work that only an organization of the type of the Alumni Association 
can do, and it is the duty and honor of every interested graduate to show his 
or her colors by not only joining the Association but working with it. 

In the past the annual Chicago Teachers' Day program has been perhaps 
the largest thing that the Association has attempted. New fields are opening up 
however and the plans for the year beginning September 1919 are full of possi- 
bilities and opportunities for the young and old teacher alike. 

Our membership is large, but it ought to be one hundred per cent; The 
dues are nominal, fifty cents a year, and with the co-operation of the new grad- 
uating class a great and new start should be made in September. ttl 

Education and the educational activities of the Chicago school system are 
lightly regarded by the public. Our task is to advance the standard of modern 
education and raise the public school teacher to a higher professional level. 

To win, we must present a solid front! ffl 



Our Class Day Programme 

Did \\-e ha\e one wonderful presentation of our talent: \A'ell it surely was. 
That orchestra was our ^■ery own. Absolutely yes. That dancing number was 
extremely effective — don't \ou think.' Such costuming, and scenic effects. And 

wasn't Story land the cutest ever: — Miss — did make the cutest Jackie 

Horner — and Simple Simon — wasn't he a scream.' And really when that Sum- 
mer Girl Minstrel affair ended, I \'\'as limp from laughing. Funny — why I could 
live through the whole thing at least nine times more — couldn't }'ou.' But the 
plav — it was so real — "'icitliiu the experience of the individual — don't you know.'' 

But sav — don't }'ou think the numbers were brought together beautifulh', 
hv that little oh! — you know, the first scene where evervone was rushing madly 
about trying to get read}' for the "Rehearsal." I thotight that was clever. All 
this cleverness can be attributed to the Seniors — assisted by the facult\'. burely 
each did his part and ma}-be Class Day didn't "go over the top" with a bang! 
Wow!!! — ^M. G. Sheridan. 


There are girls who start practice in Englisl 
There are girls who start practice in Art, 
But the ones who get science to teach in. 
Are the ones who will push at a cart. 

In his cart you will carry some sponges 
With a box full of flax seed to sprout. 
And en top you will carry some pavement — 
Enough dirt for each one on your route. 

You will stop at each child and distribute 
All your diggings of nights and of years; 
You will dote on the life of a lima 
And exhibit a grapefruit with tears. 

For by now you are puffing and tired. 
And }'ou pray for strength from on high, 
If }'ou practice in nature in winter 
\Mien no bird and no flower is nigh. 



Snaps of Normal 

Xornial: Well let me see. Yes, as I look 
back I have a few impressions — pictures let us 
call them — which I can recall to mind. 

First, is the picture of the building — big 
stateh' and domed. Did you ever stop to 
think how appropriate that dome is: Oh 
yes, and take careful note of that one big 
elm tree on the — what does the school song 
call it: — "'the tree-filled campus." Many is 
the time I have pointed it out to unsuspectmg 
classmates ! 

O ODCDQaac3aE3oaaoQCJc:% :;2. 

But let us look at the assembly — the place where we first meet the faculty 

as a whole (:). How light and charming it is! And how much more charming 

and light when filled by the future torches of the young and innocent. Even as 

I looked back I can hear the sweet voices singing "Love's Old Sweet Song" or 

'"A Thousand Years" under the guidance 

of the music department, and the gentle 

snores of the good keeping perfect time 

to the vibrating voice of a speaker lectur- 

y(^ ing on some fascinating subject. Oh 

hu-u-umm! Pardon my yawning, the 

mere thought affects me. 



The next picture Is rather dark, but if you stop a minute I think you will 
soon be able to discern a few things. Yes, it is room 200 and that figure up in 
front is Mr. Owen. You can see by his attitude that he is carefully analysing and 
bringing out some point. He doesn't seem to make it sharp enough however, for 
it does not penetrate the audience very far. The first row appears in a pretty 
lert state but the last — well you can see for yourself. 

Speaking of states of mind brings out a picture of 
other states. This picture includes a tantalizingly in- 
quisitive (about stately things) person of rather large 
proportions backed up by maps of — what are they: 
Massachusetts and Maine, or California and x\la- 
bama.^ (Would that Mrs. Cook were here to note 
the beautiful connection I made between the second 
and third picture.) 

Ah, here is a picture of — well, I think I'd call it "The Den of the Lamb in 
Wolf's Clothing" "Miss , what did we do last time.^" Psychologically speak- 
ing I think Lve called up enough associations to warrant a passing on to the next 


Here I see a table with something stretched out 

on a pan. Beside the table stands a woman with some- 
thing like a -a- knife,, I guess. Listen! "If any of 
you feel faint you are free to open the window." (I 
guess I'll leave.) 

Oh, what a relief to turn that picture over! Dear 
me, there's just one more! I hope this last is a nice 
one and looks more pleasant. Yes, it does, extremely 
pleasant, for it appears to be a large sunny room, so 
artistic! Pictures, vases, etchings, embroidery work 

all about and even the blackboards are covered with 

designs! What memories this picture does bring back! 

'Twas here I learned one of the greatest lessons in 

life. It thrills me as I think of it! And to think it is 

emboldied in one word. Do I remember it? How 

could I ever forget it? Yes, I'll tell it to you that 

you, too, may take it out into the world with you. 




We, the upper seniors of the class '19, in order to raise the standard of 
practice work, estabHsh justice between critic and student, promote schoolroom 
tranquility, provide for the student's defense, promote the student's welfare, in- 
sure schoolroom democracy for ourselves and all future classes, do offer these 
fourteen points to the facult}' and student body of the Chicago Normal College. 

I Let no critic teacher appear in the presence of the practice student 
with fountain pen and pad in hand. 

II Let no critic spoil the sweet disposition of a defenseless practice stu- 
dent by harsh, cruel or unjust criticism. 

Ill Let no critic, regardless of her Ph.D's or Q.E.D.'s, consider herself an 
authority on modern dress. 

IV Let no critic teacher send more than six warnings to any one student 
during her ten weeks of proctice. 

V Let every practice school have a lounging and rest-room where the 
critic may retire while practice student is teaching. 

VI Let all critic teachers have their rooms sufficiently well disciplined so 
that the practice student will not be annoyed during the work by 
mischievous pupils. 

VII Let all final marks of practice work be submitted to practice student 
for her approval. 

VIII Let every practice student have one day a week to visit her "faculty 

IX Let no janitor work be done b}' students. 

X Let no student teach her entire assignment in less than fifteen minutes. 

XI Let no practice student's "side effect" extend more than six inches. 

XII Let students receive assignments in subjects with which they have 
at least a passing acquaintance. 

XIII Let student's name be placed on monthly payroll during practice work. 

XIV Let those who survive the two terms of practice receive a distin- 
guished service medal.

Neglected was the old print shop 

And mouldering into decay, 
Until a request for some printers came 

From the children of to-day. 

Twelve patriotic girls were found 
Who were willing to volunteer, 

So into the print shop they found their way 
To do their bit over here. 

Over the 'cases' they busih' worked 
'Till the shadows of evening fell. 

And soon the press in the old print shop 
Its story was read}' to tell. 

The press was fed b)' two dainty hands 
And pumped b\' willing feet. 

Until all jobs were printed well 
Upon each clean white sheet. 

Christmas cards, programs, and posters 
Were 'set up' with beaut}' and skill. 

For any and all occasions 

With the greatest of good will. 

Now that, their course is completed 

And they have satrted on their v.'ay. 

They are ready to serve this nation 
And the children of to-day. 

— M. C. 


Haste, Saturday! And bring with thee. 
Sleep and Jo}', and moments free; 
From the lessons and the tests. 
Time to darn the next week's socks. 
Time to live and breathe and rest. 
Time to buy some new made frocks. 
Time, alas, to wash }'our hair. 
Time to dry it in the air. 
Time for magazines and plays, 
And perhaps a matinee or so, 
Time to walk and ride and sing, 
Time for baths and everything.

Tell me not in mournful numbers, 
That you go to Normal school. 
And you've lost your peaceful slumbers 
As you pondered o'er each rule. 

Life as made for fun and frolic. 
And this school is not so bad, 
Why I know some healthy persons. 
Lived to tell the time thev had. 



Last night in a dream, 

I saw a strange scene, 

The hke of which ne'er came to pass; 

AL-. Owen with vim, stood up in the gym 

Directing with ease a large class. 

I gazed on in wonder 

How came such a blunder. 

How changed everyone now did seem, 

For, just down the hall, stood a lady, not tall, 

Aliss Gallagher acting as dean; 

Our friend Mr. Sears, then filled me with fears, 

When in large, loud, and threatening terms, 

He yelled out 'This class just never will pass 
Aly test upon angiosperms." 
Then cj-me Air. Clark 
Who drew a fine arc, 
"Why Noah's arc," quoted he. 
But sly Air. Hinkle, whose eye had a twinkle. 
Just winked at us all, and said "Gee!" 
Miss Cabell then spoke, 
With regret I awoke, 
Our school and its rules were the same; 
For classes at nine 
I must be on time 
So, I hurried and caught the last train. 

E. A. Downs. 


{With profuse apologies to B. H. Haziiey) 
If Normal exams were all a fake, 
How sweet this life would be! 
If we could always take the cake. 
Flow sweet this life would be ! 
If English were long; 
Were voices in the hall less strong; 
If music always were a song, 
How sweet tTiis life would-be! 

If James and Angell had never been born. 

How sweet this life would be! 

If we could only sleep in the morn, 

How sweet this life would be! 

If Mr. Gaston to himself would keep 

The History which he loves to teach, 

And the Junior Glee Club ceased to screech. 

How sweet this life would be! 



Sing a song of padlocks^, 

On lockers all around, 

And sing a song of locker keys. 

That never can be found, 

Then hunt for \h. Lovelock 

He knows each ke\' by name. 

He'll have your long lost darling 

Which has caused \'ou so much pain. 

Mary, jMary., quite contrary, 
\Miat makes you look so sad.' 
With warnings three, 'tis plain to see 
That no one could be glad. 

Ding, dong, dell. 

Highest hopes will quell. 

For after nine, }"ou've not on time. 

As an}- girl will tell. 

Hark, hark, and watch each mark. 

The time is drawing near. 

When flunks come out 

And float about. 

And fill us all with fear. 


Be a little cheerful, girls, we'\'e reached the goal at lasL, 
Do not be so tearful, girls, the time is passing fast, 
After we finish Normal College. 


Hurrah, hurrah, we'll sing a jubilee 

Hurrah, hurrah., for soon we will be free. 

We'll raise a song that will be heard. 

Of things have occurred. 

After we have left Normal College. 

Bring the old piano, girls, we'll sing a rousing song. 

Sing it well and loudly, girls, and make the chorus strong. 

Not much time remaining, girls, }-ou know it won't be lon^ 

Till we have left Normal College. 

Lives of seniors all remind us 
We should strive to do our best 
And departing leave behind us. 
Notebooks that will help the rest.

It puts at your service a world of effective teaching material; vital, timely informa-

for class use — the editors have already done that for you. It solves your prol^lems. 
It answers every-day ciuestions quickly, accurately, delightfully. It is like a 
fresh breeze blowing through your schoolroom, putting new enthusiasm into
